Mixed Media Chic (by Shilpa)

It is a new month and time to welcome back Shilpa who joins us for another of her guest Design Team spots.  This week she treats us to a shabby chic style design. Enjoy.




Hello Everyone, Shilpa here, it is great to be back with my Guest Designer post here. I've created this mixed media card with Chocolate Baroque Just Butterflies stamp set, it has beautiful 8 butterfly image stamps.



I created the background on Prima Epiphany design paper. Created first layer of texture with stencil and texture paste. Let it dry completely. Next to bring on colours, I spritzed Colour shine inks in green and purple onto it (any type of mica sprays will also work well), then dried the surface with heat tool.
As I am crazy about texture, I created another layer with flower stencil and texture paste.



I spritzed the purple ink on watercolor paper, when it dried, I stamped butterflies and fussy cut it to adhere on my card.



Attached diecut "love" on the card.

Hope you liked my card and get inspired.

Thanks so much for stopping by. See you next week.

Shilpa 

I hope you will agree this is a beautiful project. Thank you for the close up photos Shilpa, they really bring your design to life, we look forward to seeing what you have in store for us next week.

Please stop by again soon to see more inspirational and creative ideas from our ever talented team.

    1. Even though there is lots of texture, there is still such a 'softness' to the look. Love the colors used and the butterfly is gorgeous tucked in among the floral blooms.
